Given the very high percentile of self-provided housing and the increasing number of local family shop house, this paper unfolds how ordinary people manage and appropriate their space. By purposively choosing shop houses built by Chinese & Javanese in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, the analysis focuses on the distinct spatial arrangement which resulted in the inward/outward orientation, multi-unit/single-unit, linear/cluster organization, and closeness/openness regardless of the shape of the building. Interviewing, photographing and sketching were conducted in order to get the house plan and number of rooms, and the behavior tracing method to complete the information about activity and function of the room.
